The purpose of this policy is to define the guidelines for the disposal of technology equipment and components owned by Evangel University.
Technology equipment often contains parts which cannot simply be thrown away. Proper disposal of equipment is both environmentally responsible and often required by law. In addition, hard drives, USB drives, CD-ROMs and other storage media contain various kinds of Evangel University data, some of which is considered sensitive. In order to protect our constituent’s data, all storage mediums must be properly erased before being disposed. However, simply deleting or even formatting data is not considered sufficient. When deleting files or formatting a device, data is marked for deletion, but is still accessible until being overwritten by a new file. Therefore, special tools must be used to securely erase data prior to equipment disposal.
